Bananas are back!

Last weekend, I bought a batch of pretty green bananas. In the past, the bananas I would get from the same store would be ripe in a couple of days. Well, boy was I wrong to expect the same this time!

It's day 7 of my banana riping journey, and only one, yes one, is actually yellow enough to be eaten! I love my oatmeal with banana, hence why there was a shortage of breakfast oatmeal this week!
But I couldn't wait any longer. Whipped banana oatmeal had to be made:

I added a spoonful of cottage cheese (a la Kath) and topped with Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Granola, a few raisins, and coconut flakes.

Together at last!
For a snack later, I'm taking this little guy with me to school:

It makes me feel so good eating it because it's a bar that will make a difference.

Happy Friday! We made it!

  4. Hi Sara! You can buy them online or at Whole Foods! Two Degrees is a wonderful company with a wonderful mission, so I always try to buy a few bars to support!

  5. [...] hours!! It felt wonderful and my body needed it. I was also ecstatic to wake to not one but three ripe bananas!!! I had to have banana whipped oatmeal [...]
